One of the featured vendors at Sugar Hill Market on Sunday, May 4th is the company A. Bernadette which brings eco-friendly, fair trade fashionable designs to the big city.  This Harlem-based company was started up by industry fashion veteran Andrea Reyes who went to Uganda for research and started producing a line of accessories with the goal of helping the local African economy grow. One of the big items at Sugar Hill Market are the $40 traditional African wax cloth print bags that have unique insulation pouches which keep cold items cool for hours or serves as a slow cooker when hot pots are placed within.  This collection also includes bright, woven bracelets made out of recycled materials and quirky, reversible shopping bags that will be part of the spring assortment.

A. Bernadette also has small design business-related classes that are affordable for any local startups.  The next event is a financial tutorial this week for those who want to know more about what it takes to start your own business.  Tickets are $20 for this one day immersion class: LINK
